    FORT WORTH, Texas -- Tre'Von Willis scored 30 points Saturday, leading UNLV to a 79-70 victory over TCU.

    Chace Stanback added 19 points and Matt Shaw 10 for the hot-shooting Rebels (16-4, 4-2 Mountain West), who made 59.2 percent (29 for 49) of their shots from the field despite going 4 for 15 on 3-point attempts.

    Nikola Cerina had 14 points for TCU (10-10, 2-3). Zvonko Buljan and Greg Hill added 13 each, and Edvinas Ruzgas had 11.

    The Horned Frogs pulled within 72-70 on a 3-point play Buljan with 1:05 remaining, but UNLV scored the final seven points of the game -- all on free throws -- to put the game away.

    The Rebels were on top 38-30 at halftime and led by as many as 11 in the second half before TCU tied the game at 60 on a pair of free throws from Ronnie Moss with 8:35 left. UNLV responded with a 9-0 run, only to see the Horned Frogs score 10 of the next 13 points.
